Soundforge was used to make fades, and to patch-in the first
five seconds of Shakedown from the AUD source taken from LMA.
The missing segment of drums could not be patched-in since the
same segment was missing from the AUD source.

There was a rain storm during this show, which seems to have
caused some sound problems in the mix. Both Jerry and Bob's
guitars drop in and out of the mix during the first set, and
are almost gone at times. These moments occur in spots between
TLEO and Women Are Smarter. There's also light static in the
right channel at a few spots, and a few brief moments where the
vocals go out, and the bass pops. All of these are likely due
to the rain storm, and not a problem with the transfer or your
download. Still, it's a great source, so don't let that scare
you away. There's minimal cuts and hiss, so I'm guessing this
is a low-gen source, or possibly a reel source. Big thanks to
Joey Browning and Jake Feinberg for the cassettes. ENJOY!

One of a very few 80's Spanish Jams. You almost get the feeling Jerry wanted to answer the jam that went into drums with something of his own.

Subject: Oh Yeah -- this is choice
Don't miss this one. A very nice board-- keyboards are a little bit high, but hey, so this show you really get to hear everything that Brent was doing. I'd actually like to see that for each band member sometimes--Bob and Phil are frequently mixed too low for my taste.

The show itself just totally smokes. I wasn't there, but sure wish I had been. I saw them three nights later in Austin which was plenty hot too--the summer 82 tour really was a truly outstanding tour-- one of the best Post-77 tours, if not the best.

I love this show. The recordings definitely capture the mood. However, there is not one recording which includes Weir's line, "Welcome to the annual Red Rocks Rainout..." between "Women are Smarter" and "Althea." I know he said it; I was there, and I have it on my Tour Diary.

I'm a big fan of early '80s AUDs, but I have to admit that this SBD source sounds much better than the best AUD source for this show. Listeners below have complained about Jerry's levels; I'm not sure that is that big of an issue. The AUD blasts Jerry but the rest of the band is drowned out, and the mics seem to be have a lot of space between them and the speakers despite being an FOB. Here, Bobby and Jerry are cranked, and the overall sound is much more clear.

Great show, competent non-CM SBD.

Subject: Jerry?
Good recording to play along to to since Jerry is almost non-existent in the mix.
Reviewer: jpotts3 - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - November 18, 2009
Subject: Way heavily weighted toward keyboard, away from Garcia
Very sad to say the mix on this i so tweaked away from Garcia's guitar, which is never nearly as dominant in the mix as it is on the audience tapes of this-you'll see, it sort of spoils this otherwise nice board.

See my review of the show over on the Audience version-

in short, Red Rocks 82, 2nd night: 7/28/82
the best I ever saw live!
( out of 15 years and 100 shows)

I loved this show. What a day. So many hours in the rain scoring a tix; amazingly transformed to a magical evening of crystal clear music.
